The CPHP is one of my top go-to resources when I don’t know an answer to a public health related question, and, especially when I don’t even know how to begin find an answer. The staff are all focused on making public health great in our state, are well-connected to individuals doing excellent work, and are always helpful, approachable and kind. Without a doubt, the CPHP houses some of my favorite public health professionals. From the individual technical assistance they provide to facilitating group trainings throughout Colorado, the CPHP is invaluable and one of the greatest assets within the Colorado Public Health community.
